    Hi all.   I have downloaded the 0.9 version of opencycl and unzipped it sucessfully.  It seems to start and run OK (see log below).    However, when I try to access the following URL:


    I get nothing.

    How do I start the web server?

      Everything in your log looks correct. Could the port be in use by something else? Maybe try a tool like Active Ports:

      I just got the same problem of the browser not coming up, but it was because I had mistakenly deleted the transcripts directory from within the run directory (and the 0002 directory that was in the transcripts directory). Those directories have to be there for the agenda to work. When the agenda halted, even after I restarted it (by typing '0'), the URL wouldn't bring up the browser until I restarted Cyc. Now that I have those directories back, everything seems to work okay.

      I downloaded active ports and ran it on my machine and I get the following:

      mysqld-nt.exe    1276    3306            LISTEN    TCP    C:\MySQL4.1.8\bin\mysqld-nt.exe
      latest.bin    1664    3600            LISTEN    TCP    C:\opencyc\run\bin\latest.bin
      latest.bin    1664    3601            LISTEN    TCP    C:\opencyc\run\bin\latest.bin
      latest.bin    1664    3602            LISTEN    TCP    C:\opencyc\run\bin\latest.bin
      latest.bin    1664    3614            LISTEN    TCP    C:\opencyc\run\bin\latest.bin
      db2jds.exe    2824    6789            LISTEN    TCP    C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB\BIN\db2jds.exe

      So the ports are listening but I still can connect and get a page not displayed.  I get this with either the Firefox 1.0 browser or IE 6.x browser.

      I am using Windows XP Pro SP2.  I have noticed posts in the help forum see

      that mention the same problem albeit for opencyc 0.7.

      Also I do have the transcripts and transcripts/0002 directories.

      Your help is much appreciated.
